When Robots Rule The Earth

Sat 08 16:45 - 17:00

By applying many sciences, we can imagine a future where brain emulations are the first sort of human-like robots. We can foresee mind speeds, body sizes, wages, career paths, aging, mating, talk, wealth, growth, cities, politics, law, war, & death.

Ethics, Robotics and the workplace
The explosive and rapid impact of technological process characterises the fourth industrial revolution and transforms production, management and governance, tearing down the barriers between the physical sphere, the digital and biological worlds. The irruption onto the scene of robots as automated labourers poses ethical problems and raises issues for future economic and social contexts. Will jobs be lost? Should we trust robots when they make delicate decisions without human control? Will they increase or decrease inequality between men? Will mankind remain in perpetual idleness or be required to accept underpaid or purely unskilled work? Policy plays a fundamental role in establishing new forms of collective equilibrium.
